In the summer months our gardens are the perfect setting for that jug of refreshing Pimms, whilst over looking the countryside views.
The Oak Rooms
Set on the edge of Downswood, The Orchard looks out onto open fields. When you pull into the ample car park, the 15th century oak rooms are the most obvious – when you enter inside it soon becomes apparent that there is a stylish snug bar and split level entertaining area.
Whilst our design skills have given a slightly oriental feel to the decor, some of the timbers are thought to date back to Viking times, maintaining a traditional atmosphere.
The oak rooms also have their very own bar and small private terrace area with seating.
The oak rooms are the perfect choice for the more intimate wedding celebrations and other special occasions .This area is idyllic for fine dining (see our menu and opening times).
